The Show: If band stage positions were football formations…

Joel Gion parks the bus.

Joel Gion “parks the bus.” That’s soccerball lingo for packing the defence and smothering attacks from the other team.

…what was The Brian Jonestown Massacre‘s formation last night at The Foundry? 4-2-1? 1-3-2-1? 1-3-3? Was Joel Gion a false nine deliberately distracting us with tambourine trickery. Was Anton Newcombe playing the classic trequartista role but unconventionally orchestrating action from the right flank instead of through the middle? Unconventional minds want to know.

Black Estate Sessions Volume 1

black-estate-playlist-20150418The Joint likes to dream of DJ’ing with the greats at crucial moments in pop history. Larry Levan in 70’s NYC. Don Letts‘ punky reggae party at The Roxy. DJ Alfredo at Amnesia on Ibiza in the late eighties.

But at our age when we play out it’s not exactly 20,000 people mashed up in field. More like several dozen punters dining at a vineyard. Less “Sorted For E’s & Whizz“. More “Little Old Wine Drinker Me“. Which is exactly why we were invited to play records at the Black Estate Tasting Room & Eatery last Saturday afternoon.

Many thanks to all for making us feel very welcome and a special mention to Waipara DJ Sylvia for helping out. When we ran out of vinyl after 4 hours she filled in with her Lorde LP. Unfortunately we’d stopped recording the set at this point so it was very much a case of you had to be there. Which means in future years, just like with Levan, Letts and Alfredo, thousands will claim they were.

The Joint. Keeping it real(ly mellow).
